  • menace on Ohio goes Amos.

  • Welcome to the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, where the excitement is high on the jet lag is quite strong.

  • I've just got off a 12 air flights where I start slurring.

  • My words haven't been on the Asahi's I promise, and we start here on the Suzuki stand.

  • Our first dose of oddness on the theme this year for Suzuki is something called wacko Wacko Switch.

  • No idea what it means, but isn't that delightfully Japanese?

  • And the result is this car Over here, it's called the Wacko SP.

  • Oh, it's basically a tiny plug in hybrid coupe A.

  • You'll see the back actually pops out, turning it into a shooting break at the touch of a button.

  • It's all very cool.

  • I'm getting flavors of the Honda Urban evey from it, with all its retro touches.

  • Absolutely love.

  • It might be my favorite car of the show, and who knows?

  • Honda has put the urban evey into production.

  • If we shout loud enough, maybe they do the same with this and come over here because it's got a sister car.

  • There's more wacko, wacko ooh to come.

  • This one is called the Han are a concept now it's a vision of what cars are gonna look like when the driver is no longer needed.

  • Essentially, it's a room on four wheels apart.

  • That sounds very un interesting, doesn't it?

  • But somehow Cizik, you've managed to make it interesting by putting this wraparound retro body on it.

  • Have you said that this is the future of driving to shape me now?

  • Yes.

  • Look at this.

  • Oh, the every go anywhere baby room in collaboration with calm, be snappy title there for a car and as a father to this is pretty much my dream wheels into car that's been designed entirely for parents.

  • So you notice lines absolutely everywhere for discreet feeding.

  • Come around the back.

  • Look at this twin changing stations and, of course, with a healthy dose of Japanese technology thrown into that box.

  • I'm told it's for warming.

  • The bum wipes.

  • Those are sprays from cleaning the bums.

  • There's music.

  • There's, um, moving Mobil's up here.

  • Oh, yes.

  • This is a bit of me.

  • This car might actually look into important one of these.

  • There was a time when I was cool, you know, steady on.

  • Don't get too excited.

  • it's the new Honda Jazz or the Honda Fit, as they call it in Japan, a car beloved by Oh, a peace everywhere.

  • This is the fourth generation car is gonna be hybrid only in Europe, on DDE.

  • Well, it is quite a significant card.

  • I think they're going to sell 20,000 of these a year in the UK line.

  • Well, the population is getting older, isn't it?

  • And I think that's all I can tell you about this for a full of sleep standing up.

  • I'll be honest.

  • I haven't got a clue what's going on.

  • I can only assume this is aimed at the motorcyclist.

  • Doesn't like getting where all the car driver, who's sick and tired of getting wedged in width, restrict er's.

  • Either way, I like its ambition somewhere in the corner of a Japanese man's brain, this makes perfect sense.

  • Well, that's very pretty, isn't it?

  • But this is what we're here to see.

  • The Nissan aria concept.

  • Nothing to do with Game of Thrones, I'm told, is in fact, surprise.

  • Surprise.

  • Another all electric SUV concept.

  • But this one previews the next version of Nissan's design language.

  • So the next face of the extra in the new cash chi ah, nde.

  • It debuts quite interesting piece of technology, something called Pro Pilot to point basically arrival to Tesla's autopilot system.

  • It can drive for you on motorways when there's defined lane markings side.

  • But unlike the Tesla, we have to keep your hand on the wheel to let I know that you're there.

  • This actually uses cameras to monitor you so it can tell whether you're falling asleep or if you get on ipads strapped to your face.

  • Clever stuff.

  • Okay, Mitsubishi M I Tech concept looks quite interesting, doesn't it?

  • Is quite interesting, in fact, because underneath that beach buggy meets Transformers exterior is a plug in hybrid powertrain and not any plug in hybrid powertrain.

  • Because the Range extender isn't a petrol engine that's too heavy.

  • This is a gas turbine.

  • It's not only lighter, it can also run on a variety of fuels as well.

  • So diesel, kerosene, alcohol.

  • I wouldn't recommend in Jagermeister in the tank.

  • It's got four electric motors, one for each wheel on the party trick, I'm told, is that it can spin on the spot.

  • No idea whether that's useful or not, but there we go try and think of the last time I saw on open Top two seater SUV and I think I've got it.

  • It's the Suzuki X 90.

  • Look it up.

  • Terrible call.

  • You know, the Al Pena is massive in Japan.

  • I didn't either.

  • But the people of good taste, because look at this.

  • The new B three saloon, and it is absolutely spot on.

  • We saw the wagon version of this in Frankfurt.

  • But here is the saloon.

  • Here's the one you want.

  • You might have seen some leaked pictures of the rear end of the new BMW M three online recently.

  • If you can't wait for that, this is the car you want.

  • Four wheel drive, 463 horsepower from a reworked three litre straight six Twin turbo.

  • It will do 188 miles an hour.

  • Do not 60 in 3.8 seconds on.

  • Just look at it.

  • Classic Multi spoke wheels Body kit.

  • Quad exhausts.

  • Yes, please say hello to the new Lexus design language.

  • This is the L.

  • F 30 concept, and he's quite bold, isn't it?

  • What is it?

  • It's an electric car show that Lexus and Toyota serious about joining the E V race.

  • It's short than a Range Rover about the same height as an I pace.

  • It's kind of got bits of shooting brake bits of hatchback bits of crossover in.

  • It doesn't really conform to any one type of genre.

  • It's got gull wing doors.

  • It's got steering wheel that retracts an autonomous mode.

  • But forget all that.

  • That's just motor show guff.

  • This is a statement of intent from the biggest car company in the world.

  • This is definitely one of the biggest debuts at the Tokyo most, showing the reason being that it is relevant for us back in the UK they're going to sell this car from 2021 back in the UK from around 30 grand.

  • What is it?

  • It's Masters first electric car, and you probably got a bit over excited when you saw the fact that it was called the M X 30.

  • Maybe imagining the two seater electric sports car.

  • But alas, it is another electric SUV.

  • But this one is just enough difference in there to give it a different flavor.

  • And I'll tell you why.

  • First of all, Master hasn't given it on enormous battery they haven't bothered messing around giving it a 300 mile range because that's where customers think they want.

  • But Master says they don't really this to do 130 miles on a charge doesn't sound like much, but most people only use the e mails a day.

  • 35 kilowatt hour battery on the exciting bit is the fact that it's God reinjury rear doors, just like the Rx eight could be quite handy when it comes to posting your kids in the back.

  • And here's the big news as well.

  • This car is gonna see the return of the Rotary Engine two Masters lineup not as a primary power source, but has a range extender in a hybrid version that's going to follow.

  • You can always trust Master to do things a little bit differently.

  • Alarm anyone, But I think this super might not be entirely standards.

  • Few cheeky Monsey.

  • Full engine swap to retire to Via you can see the turbo screamer pipe popping out of the bombing at the top.

  • There few body alterations and a full conversion to a competition spec drift car.

  • Imagine the turning circle on the come around the corner This is what we came to see.

  • How cool is this?

  • The Cramer 935 obviously built in the late seventies around the same time as the 93578 The Moby Dick from Port to Port wouldn't sell Moby Dicks to privatise.

  • So Kramer went out on a rift on the Big Well Tell made its own version sensibly.

  • And arguably, it's even a better looking car, especially in this Yeager mass delivery.

  • You keep your Mancini one of these.

  • We've headed upstairs a bit more off the beaten track to bring you some more odd, bold Tokyo moat shown as luck would have, it doesn't get a lot harder than this.

  • This is the Mitsuoka roti.

  • I probably pronounced that What is it?

  • It's without doubt the ugliest supercar that's ever been made, and ironically, you become with the friendliest place that's ever been making sure smiling at us.

  • Anyway, this car actually starts life as a last generation.

  • NSX has got Toyota V six in the back.

  • How on earth could have they got it?

  • So roll.

  • This model, in fact, has Bean lightly molested by Liberty Walks has been slammed.

  • It's got the wider art has actually improved things a little bit.

  • Could this be a case of a car that's so bad it actually becomes good?

  • Leave that question hanging in the air.

  • Believe way, actually.

  • Have to get a train to the other half of the murders.

  • Just fine, then.

  • I've got money.

  • Uh, bet you didn't think trucks could be sexy, did you?

  • Yeah, Well, Zu zu is quite literally giving me a semi with this.

  • It's new concept truck.

  • Now, at first glance, you probably think this is a rival to Tesla's electric semi, but it's not.

  • There's a diesel engine back there because he still thinks of this size and weight.

  • A diesel engine makes most sense.

  • The idea with this concept, aerodynamics has been treated some proper supercar style adults to smooth the air flow.

  • Like these air curtains you can see in the front on these kind of floating pods down the side of the truck, so it cuts more clean.

  • It uses less fuel.

  • Yeah, I think I file this one under least likely.
